Running For Women


Course Objectives:

1. Teach students the mechanics of running

2. Teach students how to train correctly with a safe, gradual, structured run-and-walk plan, which slowly 
builds running minutes and distance.

3. Teach students how to minimize the risk of injuries

4. To increase the enjoyment of physical fitness through run/walk workouts

5. To encourage students to integrate exercise into their daily lives

6. To help students realize the health benefits of running and regular exercise

7. To offer students a place to meet like-minded individuals and build long-term friendships

8. To improve each student’s personal sense of well-being and self-confidence

9. To pass on my passion for running!


PHE-001 is a P/NP course
A grade of Pass is based upon attendance – no more than 3 absences are allowed.   In addition, technical and tactical skill development is assessed and supported throughout  the quarter


1. Proper running shoes are essential. Tennis shoes or cross-trainers increase your risk of injury.

2. Running tights/running shorts, are preferable, but sweats are fine.

3. No jeans

4. Running shirts – technical shirts which wick away moisture are optimal, but T-shirts are fine. 
(Sports bras alone are not acceptable.)

Course Syllabus – OPTIONAL Reading:

You will receive Lessons on topics related to running and fitness. I’ll send coaching tips each weekend, with the exercise “Prescription” (the run/walk workout) for the upcoming week. Running For Women is more than just a running class; it’s a moving classroom!

This Resource material is for your own information. THIS IS A TEST-FREE/STRESS-FREE ZONE! First Day of Class will be your Orientation only. You do not need to wear workout clothes.

I look forward to meeting you! My goal is to provide a place for you to de-stress, and help you achieve your fitness goals in a safe, supportive, and motivational environment. I want you to get fit, make friends, and have fun!
